WHAT HAPPENS TO THE FAT AFTER YOUR LOSE WEIGHT?

Wondered where does the fat go when you burn it?
Well, there is a common misconception that when you get involved in some physical activity your body gets heated up and it’s gone. The other wrong theory is that the fat is something that you excrete or something that get converted to a muscle.


Yes, we all would love to get rid of it from our body, and we are glad when it’s gone. But it’s not exactly that how it happens. Excess carbs and proteins that we consume are converted into biological compound consisting of molecules such as hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon. These are stored as fat cells and we need them for energy to survive. For that, you need these molecules to be broken apart. 


Remember chemistry lessons at school where you learned when you break up fat you end up with carbon dioxide, water and energy. Apparently, to burn 10 kg of fat, you need to inhale 29 kg of oxygen to break it down and it produces 28 kg of CO2 and 11 kg of water. 

Turns out you exhale more CO2, and you'll lo…

How do you get a good night's sleep?

“Dear Sleep, I know that we had problems when I was small, but I need you now.” probably, something most of us yearning to say so badly these days.
And we have seen and wondered how on earth some people could fall asleep in less than like a minute, as if they just are switching off a light. Are they so stressed or tired?
A good night’s sleep is an essential component of a healthy lifestyle and depriving yourself of it could be similar to running a machine with no down time for maintenance/repairs.
One can list out a multitude of medical reasons for why you might not be getting a good night's sleep.  For some, they cannot sleep because they have insomnia; but if you take a closer look, for many of you, it could well be the internet connection that plays the villain. The 24/7 world has made your life that way! Your work doesn't seem to end when it gets dark or it can begin much before the sun rise. Distractions could be many to keep you engaged well into the wee hours - surfing, cl…

How smart monitoring solutions delighted a diabetic?

Diabetes is fast becoming a full-fledged epidemic in India.Prevention through lifestyle changes, early detection through timely screening, and ongoing treatment and monitoring are the need of the hour.
Management of diabetes is not limited to managing data alone, but managing patients as well. Care providers are required to screen all their patients for diabetes and pre-diabetes. Once diagnosed with diabetes, physicians need to have a register of such patients so as to help them keep track of each patient or at-risk patient, and this can also be a database of diabetes trends for future reference.
With the wide influx of mHealth applications and connected devices pushed into market today, connected health has already become a reality. This empowered diabetics with user centric applications and transformed the diabetic patients into an actor of their own health.
Digitization of health records has assisted doctors considerably as it has mi…

TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR STRESS BEFORE IT TAKES CONTROL ON YOU!

Stress gets to you like a slow poison. You become less confident about your abilities. You stumble while walking even on a smooth path. You fumble for obvious words and stammer while you talk. You crave for sympathy and understanding, but gets reprimanded by your superiors and mocked and ridiculed by your friends.
While stress can be a normal physical and psychological response to the demands of life, too much of it can be harmful to one’s health. When stressed, our body produces hormones such as cortisol, adrenaline or epinephrine, and norepinephrine. 
Adrenaline causes your heart to beat faster causing high blood pressure and over time this leads to hypertension. While cortisol could cause the inner lining of the blood vessel to not function which eventually leads to cholesterol plaque buildup in your arteries. Together these changes increases your risk of heart attacks or stroke
An influx of these stresses can also cause gastrointestinal or stomach problems. Generally, these are the s…
